The 2017 Chakalaka consists of 6 grape varieties (27% Grenache/Garnacha , 26% Syrah/Shiraz, 22% Mataro, 11% Carignano/Carignan , 8% Petite Sirah, 6% Tannat) blended to produce an expressive wine with good flavour profile. This wine is deep ruby in colour with aromas of clove and subtle white pepper which mingle with juicy blackberry and plum fruit. Full-bodied and rich, the palate displays well-integrated oak and smooth, structured tannins.
Chakalaka, a Zulu word that implies togetherness, refers to a truly South African blend of spices, used to add flavour to local dishes. A reflection of the “Rainbow Nation”, this wine is inspired by the cultural diversity of which Spice Route are justly proud. Traditional practices in the vineyards and a delicate hand in the cellar craft the Spice Route Chakalaka blend: a sum of many parts selected for their ability to express the soils of the Swartland wine region harmoniously.
Food pairing: A bold wine like this can hold up to the flavours of slow-roasted meat (lovely with barbequed pork) and Asian cuisine, such as plum sauce, will add to the fruitiness in the wine.
